Well, first of all, there is yet another example of favor toward pedestrianization - even someone driving to the core eventually has to cross the street too.

park on the left side of the street, walk over to the pay booth, put ticket into car, then figure out how the heck to cross King

The former two are pretty typical in most cities I've visited - park on one side of the street and use the nearby pay machine. The latter seems uniquely difficult in this region - crossing a busy street in the middle of the city core. My two cents for what they're worth is that the pedestrianization is the bigger weakness than the actual parking. Needs to be relatively easy to park, and then pleasant and easy to walk around. Then maybe it's not such a big deal to require a parking spot directly at the doorstep of the business you are visiting?

And complete street / transit advocates may want to stop by these businesses and spend some cash in a show of support and solidarity.

I would but I'm not allowed to bike there. (That was a joke :)
